Emotional porn for angst junkies with no resolution or even an attempt at one. This is the story of a selfish egotist who sees a baby as an accessory to build her own ego and another selfish egotist who "gets even" with her rival by stealing her husband, then refuses to accept the consequences of...

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this wonderful novel. The novel starts with a punch - a new mother abandons her baby at the hospital. Why would a woman do this? Told out of sequence over the course of a year, her actions become understandable, if difficult, and the ties that bind herself...

Oh, faithful readers. I really liked this book, and I'm still a bit annoyed that it ended. The titular Haven in question is a newborn infant whose parentage is somewhat convoluted. His forty-year-old gestational carrier is Georgia, who has a teenage daughter with her chef husband John. Georgia and...

Leaving Haven is a great, humane book full of moral complications by a fine novelist. Deep empathy, gentle humor and graceful narrative marks Kathleen McCleary's writing. She reminds me of Richard Russo, John Casey and Richard Ford in those regards (sorry that I have no female points of reference...

When I read how much the woman, Georgia, wanted the baby, it made even less sense to me that she would abandon him. But as the book delved deeper into the reas...

http://www.anovelreview.blogspot.com/... Let me start with, go buy this book! No joke! Go buy it! I absolutely loved LEAVING HAVEN! I am going to try very hard to not giveaway any spoilers. During the novel, the reader is given both Georgia and Alice's perspective--which really really allow you the...

I loved this novel. The characters were perfectly drawn to be both likeable and flawed. There was no happily ever after, and I strongly suspect McCleary isn't done with Alice and Georgia based on the ending (which would be fine with me). The only part of this novel I struggled with is the backwar...

Leaving Haven By Kathleen McCleary Essentially... This is a book about families and friendships that take a really wrong turn! My thoughts after reading this book... Georgia and Alice are best friends. They vacation together, they both have daughters the same age, they talk daily. Georgia is something...
